More and more frequently, homeowners are also searching for flooring that's eco-friendly too. We've found a great flooring candidate that is beautiful, long-lasting and good for the environment...

Elesgo wood laminate flooring is an environmentally and ecologically friendly flooring manufacturered in Germany and made using only the limbs and branches of FSC certified forests. Acrylic resin based, it boasts an impressive formaldehyde and solvent-free formula.

And to top it off, they say the super gloss version never needs to be polished. Too good to be true? You'll have to judge for yourself. Visit their website at elesgo.com.
